Methods Engineer (Former Employee) –  Tucson, AZNovember 8, 2015
Worst place and product I have ever been associated with, the culture (south of the border) has NO Idea of Quality, kids running the show, backstabbing is the norm here if you are not from south of the border this is not the place to work, Spanish seems to be the Official language, poor engineering practices, poor manufacturing practices, extremely poor management, HR is non existent (if you need them go to the smoking area) they are always on break.
Pros
NONE
Cons
Management, culture, Quality, Honesty, lack of configuration management

PROGRAM BUYER (Former Employee) –  Tucson, AZDecember 9, 2015
I've been in the workplace for 40 years, and B/E is the absolute worst. Sweatshop environment, incompetent management, culture of fear and reprisal. Everyone looking for someone to blame, backstabbing is common - especially from management.
Pros
Good pay
Cons
Terrible management

Material Handler (Current Employee) –  Mountainhome, PAApril 9, 2016
This is the worst company I've ever work. There are folks that have been working here for 30+ years who are in leadership positions. These individuals are incompetent and lack basic leadership fundamentals. Ideas are not welcomed and they will not reward or acknowledge good performers. While BE has the potential to be a desired place to work, the reality of that happening is far from being prominent as long as the same individuals who are destroying the place are still there.

Stay away from Hardware department. The person who runs it is conniving, coincided, and reckless.
Pros
None
Cons
Poor leadership and pay

assembler (Former Employee) –  Lenexa Ks.January 17, 2016
This is a high turnover and very stressful job. The lead people berate the workers and people are let go all the time. I was stressed out and having serious panic attacks before and after work. Avoid this job it will shock your nervous system. You are not ready for this!
Pros
no pros
Cons
High turnover, no job security and nerve recking.

A good company but needs to improve contract negotiations with customers.
Project Engineer - Ecosystems (Former Employee) –  Rockford, ILJune 27, 2016
The company has a great product line but testing takes longer than necessary due to lack of management support. Also, they need a better contract negotiator to land more and better work for the company.
Pros
Good staff and great benefits.
Cons
If and when work suffers, staff is laid off immediately.

Former employee (Former Employee) –  KansasJune 26, 2015
This place is a complete mess. It has that "good-ol-boy" attitude about it. Management complains all the time and there are no clear instructions of what needs to be done and how it needs to get done. Communication is a mess too. No one is on the same page about anything. Whatever happens at the top doesn't get trickled down to the bottom line but the bottom line takes the fall for things when it doesn't go right. How are they supposed to know if they weren't told? There are too many hands in the pot. Too many chiefs and not enough indians. This company has a lot to work on and improve on before it will be taken seriously. In my time there, there were many people fired and many people leaving all at once. Turnover is a bad thing there. My advice? Seek elsewhere.
Pros
Going home at the end of the day.
Cons
Should I even list them all?

Easy work; poor management
Assembler (Current Employee) –  Great Falls MTAugust 18, 2015
Typical day starts at 6 a.m. Build a wiring harness for aircraft. I observe a lot of favoritism from management for a variety of other people. Almost reminds me of high school and the different clicks of people; especially at company sponsored events. When asked for an opinion, it is totally disregarded. Treated like anything you have to say does not matter. The job is enjoyable, the work is fun; the people are not.
Pros
excellent benefits
Cons
too much overtime

Toxic and Unhealthy Working Enviornment
Senior Contract Representative (Former Employee) –  Miami, FLNovember 4, 2014
The culture of the organization is trying to change. In order for this to be successful there needs to be a complete overhaul in leadership/management.

There's no work life balance, you're working crazy ridiculous hours.
Lack of appreciation of sacrifices...
Tons of favoritism, its all about who you know rather than what you know for advancement opportunities...

Great hard working employees get overlooked for promotions/advancement opportunities and etc..

Would not recommend working there, it's an extremely toxic and unhealthy environment. It totally drains you....
Pros
benefits package is good
Cons

Challenge and Fast paced workplace with fun environment
Sr. Buyer (Former Employee) –  Anaheim, CASeptember 18, 2015
Half of my day stay focused on internal customers demand to fulfill there need and challenge unexpected interruptions. The remainder of my day was spent managing parts shortages, reviewing MRP,Placing new orders and Negotiation with supplier Cost, Net term, Lead Time, Quality.Over time I developed soft skills to elevate the suppliers experience and reduce the duration of lead time, parts shortages. Management actively reviewed my daily tasks and encouraged long term educational goals.
My co-workers were always supportive and willing to help.
The greatest challenge was to manage the volume of parts shortages and interruptions at the desk because it was middle of manufacturing floor.
Positive Management,Suppliers and internal customers feedback kept me going.
Pros
9/80 Work Schedule, every other Friday off
Cons
Fast paced working environment

Mechanical Design Engineer (Former Employee) –  Miami, FLApril 18, 2016
Good company. Many good people. Very hard to move up in the company as there are not many openings and the people in those positions have many years with the company. Company transitioning from Pro Engineer to NX for design work.

Terrible Culture of Micro-Management and Distrust
Engineering Manager (Current Employee) –  Tucson, AZSeptember 4, 2014
Horrible culture of management not entrusting its staff to perform their job. Top-down management style where VP's get involved in daily duties not typically seen at other companies. Practice is to bandaid issues and never address them fully. If you are passive aggressive, or like working with those who are, then THIS is the place for you! Still feeling good about yourself? B/E can take care of that, too!

Irrespective of your experience or educational background, you will be put down publicly (especially via email with lots of copied managers) and lead a sullen, hollow existence.
Pros
free food and paychecks
Cons
demoralizing micro-management that will suck your self-esteem

Very busy, nice people but no training.
purchasing (Former Employee) –  Savannah, GAAugust 4, 2015
Very active environment that a person would never be bored with. Sr Management more worried about the numbers then what is really going on. To dependent on everyone's opinion, forming his opinion based on this. Training was not organized or complete. You get thrown in and expected to immediately be the SME on everything with no mistakes. No upward mobility.
Pros
Nice manufacturing people.
Cons
No organized traing

STAY AWAY if you're a salaried professional
Salaried Professional (Current Employee) –  Tucson, AZJuly 3, 2014
Be prepared for constant chaos and never seeing the light of day on account of so much MANDATORY OVERTIME.

Computer systems are archaic, the company constantly bites off more than it can chew and you will re-engineer something over and over again right up to the time it's going out the door.

You will spend a lot of your time in meetings and then spend your personal time doing the work you spoke about in meetings.

It's may be a good company for someone who's learning to get exposed to all aspects of manufacturing.

No training be prepared to hit the ground running.
Pros
pay and benefits are decent, if you can keep up you'll never be out of work
Cons
no personal life, management is out of touch

Engineer (Former Employee) –  Bohemia, NYJune 22, 2014
B/E Aerospace, since the past four years was being led by a new Director of Operations,who was also in charge of engineering as well as Manufacturing. There were many instances where due to his lack of a subject matter, his response to any problem was basically to get a resolution ASAP, no matter if the solution was impractical or if the "solution" created bigger problems.If anyone got in his way, he/she were fired within months. Glad I left this company. Be prepared to work 65+ hours weekly, and then get a bagel as compensation. Be advised- ethics is out the window when you work here! Good luck working this way B/E.

Director of Operations is very manipulative and has made many people leave this company.

Hard worker (Current Employee) –  Bohemia, NYJuly 15, 2014
Micro Managed. Very low raises. They rather new hires with few or none experience rather than hard working employees that are loyal and skilled for supervision to this company. No motivation, no incentive. Pizza is the reward. I wish their CEO could stop by with no noticed to see how how this place is being run.
Pros
a lot of work
Cons
one person is supposed to make the job of five people.

safety not a standard
assembler (Former Employee) –  Great Falls, MTSeptember 1, 2015
I found in my time at this company that safety is not as important as they make it out to be. I was injured several times and nothing was done about the safety standards. It wasn't just me. A shift lead got a significant injury and received no compensation for it.
Pros
hours
Cons
everything else.

Seat Assembler (Former Employee) –  Winston-Salem, NCMay 4, 2014
at b/e i had to learn a few new things that i didn't know, for example; i had to learn how to read blue prints well, and to use new tools i haven't used before. a regular day would consist of assembling seats in a line with people rite next to you. trying to pass the time the workers would make the best of it by having conversations. the workers there are great almost all of them friendly and fun to talk to. the hardest part of the job was standing up all day since it was a line job you couldn't sit down. my most enjoyable part if this job was the people i got to meet.
Pros
great benefits
Cons
few management problems
